Know Your DCU: Alfred Pennyworth
Alfred Pennyworth is the tireless butler of the Wayne family. After Thomas and Martha Wayne were shot and killed, Alfred was given the duty to raise their young son Bruce. Once he reached adult hood and became Batman, Bruce kept Alfred on as his butler, although he is more of a father figure to “Master Bruce”.
Alfred is in charge of keeping Wayne Manor in order, taking care of Bruce Wayne and all of his “wards”, keeping the Batcave tidy, and keeping Bruce on schedule for his public appearences outside of the cape and cowl. A former actor and soldier, Alfred has also helped Bruce in his training to become Batman and supported him in his endeavor.
Oh, he also cleans/repairs Batman’s costumes and “all those wonderful toys”…
